The hero Quinn has a Daily Power called Blade Barrier which says:

"Choose a tile within 2 tiles of you. Place five Blade Barrier tokens on five different squares on that tile.

When a Monster is places on a square with a Blade Barrier token, remove that token and deal 1 damage to the Monster"

My question is, how is it determined if a monster gets placed on a square with a Blade Barrier token? I mean it is the players who actually move the monsters, so then it is just moving the monster and place it on that square...right?

Can someone explain how they interpret this and how you would do the actual monster movement?

I think you can decide this yourself

I always do this in legend of drizzt: If the mushroom patch is not taken i move it to the mushroom patch else i decide it myself on any adjacent square around the patch. So i suggest move the tokens close to that patch ;)

Or put your hero next to a token and when a monster attacks that hero that needs to be adjacent just move the monster on a token adjacent to the hero

We are extremely generous with the "move a monster" rules:  if it helps the party for a monster to move adjacent to a hero and end up on a different tile, we do it.  If it helps for a monster to move onto the same tile as the hero, we do it.  If it helps for a monster to move adjacent to a hero and also move all the way around him so that it is adjacent to another hero - those are all valid, in our book.  (Moving a monster so that it allows another hero to move adjacent to it AND explore an edge is a great tactic.)

That said:  to me, I would interpret this not as a "monster is moving through" the blades problem, but a "monster ending up" on the blades problem.  You are "placing" the monster when it finishes its movement, so how it actually moved to get there isn't an issue.  What's important is where the monster ends up.  When a monster ends its movement on the blades - then it takes damage.
